    I went here. My wife went here. My friends went here. My daughter will go here. We owe our foundations in education to the faculty of Blue Grass Elementary School. In all honesty it was the best time of my life.

    While I am not at all impressed with the 1st grade teachers at Blue Grass Elementary I loved my daughter's kindergarten teacher and I have never met a more caring office staff. The music art and reading teachers are incredibly gifted also. We live outside the district and I couldn't imagine my children going to any other school.
